She has also exhibited The Victoria & Albert Museum , Fortnum & Masons, The London Design Museum and various galleries in France, The Netherlands, USA and Japan.
Jane's work is collected for is striking surface pattern and bold use of colour . She specializes in earthenware combining slip decoration & sgraffitto with translucent glazes in three main colours: "Aquitaine" a rich vibrant turquoise , "Loire" a deep green, and "Carcassonne" a resplendent blue purple.
Recently she has been expanding her glaze colour palette to include new speckle glazes in blue/greens & green /blacks. These works are strongly inspired by the tactile shorelines of the Isle of Wight.
